This is a "degeneracy" problem, everything looks, acts and even is one and the same thing, so how is there any differentiation that allows a plurality to obtain? 0 ≠ s(0) ≠ s(s(0)) ≠ ....

`The non-equivalence that Bruno points out here with "0 ≠ s(0) ≠`

`other. Therefore the plurality of numbers with regard to their ability`
